Butler County Sheriff’s deputies made contact with Norvell’s wife, Tiffany, at about 10 a.m. on April 5, and she said she had been punched by her husband, according to the report.
“She stated that the suspect, her husband, had punched her in the face and abdomen, kicked her and pulled her around by her hair,” the deputy wrote in the report.
She also claimed in her statement that she fled to a neighbor’s house after other threats were made.
Tiffany Norvell was escorted back to the residence, where she gathered personal items to stay with a friend, according to the report.
Deputies checked the residence, other buildings and the Norvell business but did not not find Chad Norvell. A warrant was issued for his arrest on April 6.
Norvell is scheduled to be back in court for a pre-trial hearing on Tuesday.
